The Brown Paper Bag has been serving Southern Oklahoma for nearly 30 years. Sue Fernando opened the store in April of 1975. Sue is a native Ardmoreite who came up with the idea of opening a gift and bridal registry store while attending college at the University of Oklahoma. Over the last 29 years we have grown, but our commitment to bringing you great service and unique gifts has not changed.
Our customers come in and can always expect to find a warm greeting, colorful gift ideas, a hot cup of gourmet coffee, and will likely leave knowing a few new friends.
"The Bag" is full of clothing, stationery, kitchen accessories, tabletop, toys, chocolates, coffees, jewelry (including hand made native american), candles and accessories. Most of the staff at The Brown Paper Bag consists of part-time workers and full-time wives, moms, and grandmothers. Employees include Phyllis Dyer, Janey Cox, Dana Burns, Irene Ledbetter, Kara Cox, Darla Fountain, and Kathy Gayanich.
The merchandise may change constantly, but the friendly people and atmosphere are always here! So come on in! We can't wait to greet you!
